Table 3 Secondary multivariable logistic regression models for associations between sex education and self-poisoning

From: Sex education and self-poisoning in Sri Lanka: an explorative analysis

  Model 2
OR (95% CI)
N = 681
Model 3
OR (95% CI)
N = 681
Receipt of sex education
 Yes 1.00 1.00
 No 1.45 (0.95-2.23) 1.69 (1.12-2.57)
Quality of sex education received through school
 Good quality 1.00 1.00
 Poor quality 0.77 (0.52-1.16) 0.77 (0.52-1.15)
 No sex education 1.32 (0.84-2.08) 1.54 (0.99-2.40)
Usefulness of sex education
 Useful 1.00 1.00
 Not useful 2.17 (1.15-4.11) 1.93 (1.03-3.61)
 No sex education 1.55 (1.00-2.39) 1.80 (1.18-2.74)
  1. Hospital controls, complete case analysis (Total N=681)
  2. Model 2: Adjusted for sex, age, religion, highest educational attainment of either parent
  3. Model 3: Adjusted for sex, age, religion, marital status
  4. OR Odds Ratio (if the OR>1, this suggests that exposed individuals were more likely to have self-poisoned than non-exposed individuals)
  5. CI Confidence Interval (if the CI overlaps 1, this suggests that there is no statistical evidence of a difference in risk between exposed and non-exposed individuals)
